The poster for the dance piece “Exodos” by the choreographer Sasha Waltz is an abstract translation of some aspects of the piece. The series commemorating the 25th anniversary of the dance company Sahsa Waltz & Guests accompanied several performances in Berlin. The company wanted to celebrate the anniversary in a dynamic, colourful and joyful manner. The posters are printed  with fluorescent and metal inks according to strict norms and are available in two sizes. Daniel Wiessman used photos of the dance pieces by Sasha Waltz  in collages contrasting abstract and concrete forms, blurred and sharp borders.
